Color and Time: Paintings by Roy Newell, 1956-2000
Robert Harrist, PhD, Guest Curator
During a long and singular career, Roy Newell (1914-2006) created a remarkable body of abstract paintings characterized by obsessive reworking. The exhibition will feature a group of his small oils, notable for their multilayered surfaces and luminous tonality, often bearing multiple dates that reflect the many subtle changes he made to them over time. Although they span several decades, they reflect a remarkable consistency of vision. The exhibition will travel to the Steinberg Museum of Art at Long Island University's CW Post campus in Brookville from September 8–November 15. Read the catalog here »

Bobbi Coller, PhD, Guest Curator
This exhibition examines the roles of Pollock's three lifetime dealers, Peggy Guggenheim (1943-47), Betty Parsons (1948-51) and Sidney Janis (1952-56), in the establishment of his reputation and the promotion and marketing of his work. Primarily documentary in nature, it will include photographs, correspondence, contracts, price lists, and reproductions of key paintings sold during each dealer's period of representation, as well as original works on paper and graphics by Pollock.
